Aric Marohn took our deposit on 6/12/2020 but never cut down the tree. He kept stalling with all kinds of excuses. We finally paid another company to remove the tree. As of 1/30/2021 he as not returned our deposit. He has many excuses and has made many promises but never keeps them. We are planning legal action but would rather just have our $500 back!

Very satisfied with their work. They were timely, and actually did a better job of trimming (made it look better)the large oak tree,which was the center of the project, than what I had in mind. They trimmed some ancillary trees and bushes and did a good job of cleaning up and hauling away. Good value for the price.

Got off to a rocky start with this guy and it went down hill from there. He gave us a quote the same day he came out and we hired him. We gave him $450. My husband had done some powering washing before he came,He came for a couple of hours each for 2 days. We did not hear from him after that for 2 weeks, so my husband called him and left a message. He called back and said he would come the next day. Never showed up. In that 2 weeks my husband sanded every day. The bid was for $949. He did not sand at all , so he deducted the $100. off and decided to add that on and more, so when the balance should have been $399. He charged us an additional 200. for the power washing. Would not let me mail a check, so we could inspect his work first. We wound up paying a balance of $600. Does not communicate, does not stick to his quote, and did not do the best job. Only did one coat, so now my husband and I have to give it a second coat ourselves. Should have done this job ourselves.

Response from Company:

Wow... some people create and liive in their own negative world. Quote numbers are off. was actually 1050 plus tax after yes several hours of pressure washing above the normal needed because her husband completely destroyed their deck and made lines in the wood. I added 250 not 200 for that powerwashing after an ok from husband I communicated just fine with him and she didn't know it when I told her how we were talking - Talk to your husband once in a while he looked at patio as i was doing it and was supper happy until he had to tell his wife that powerwashing was extra charges this is a case of a couple that doesn't talk so they create

This was a challenging job- replacing many cedar and underlying boards due to water damage. Had to find extent of damage, match new boards with existing that werenâ t exact size. work high on a ladder, and all in a budget. Aric has a pretty wide range of skills and Iâ d consider this project full construction work, more then most handymen would tackle. The quality of work was great.

Aric was superb. Handled my small soffit project like a real pro that he is! Great guy. I highly recommend him for any project around the home. He does landscaping work too. Thank you Aric!

I paid Aric $500 down payment for a $1000 job. He was $400 more than 2 other contractors. He did not show up. I called him again. He said he had to order some things. Then I got a phone call saying he would come Tuesday or Wednesday of last week. He never showed up and did not call. I called again today and left a message to call me. I sent an email for him to call me. He did not. I finally got him on the phone and told him I needed him to come out Thurs or Fri of this week . He did not commit. Last night a storm tore down some of the branches from the tree I wanted him to trim and they fell against my house and Xcel had to come out and cut the branches from the power line. I told him this. I said I need the trees cut away from the house. He told me if I was going to insult him and whine he will send my money back at the end of the week. He was extremely rude and his word and promises were not dependable. I am truly concerned that I will not get my $500 back. I chose him because I relied on Home Advisors. reviews. Now I am stuck with large tree branches against my house and I can't hire another person unless I get the $500 back from Aaric. So tell me, what do you do if I don't get my refund? Janice T

Response from Company:

I told her i was sorry things didn't go as expected as one of my tree spikes straps for climbing trees broke making them useless so I ordered new ones. after 2 weeks of on back order I was in communications regarding status with her by me calling her. I apologized for not calling end of week like I assumed I could get out there so yes I'm at fault for that and will try to exhaust communication more. I did say several times on the latest phone call that I can come out early week as asked to get it done but all I got was screaming and insults and asked me to refund. Rude? no. bad contractor because job was delayed? Can only try to do better

I hired Aric to complete some miscellaneous outdoor projects. Aric was quick to respond to my initial request and was able to complete the projects in a timely manner. I would definitely hire Aric again.

  1. Verify Trade License
